some news back in the u.s. and around the world. something that romney's foreign policy adviser, dan seymore, told reporters about what would happen if israel decided to strike iran unilaterally, if iran does not cease the development of nuclear weapons. dan seymore said, quote to reporters, "if israel has to take action on its own in order to stop iran from developing that capability, the governor would respect that decision." we all tried to ask governor romney about that comment as he left his meeting with president perez a few minutes ago. he did not respond to the questions. earlier he had a cordial meeting with benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister here. they exchanged pleasant trees there. and at one point netanyahu said that he supported mitt romney's comment on iran whole heartedly. it was one of the things that stood out from the meeting. >> obviously we want to get every ounce of what we can out of this visit to israel. meanwhile, i understand the governor is keeping the press out of many of his events in jerusalem. is that some sort of backlash for something? >> reporter

lessons, the road map for saving health care. america's system of bringing us into the world and helping us stay alive and supporting us as we die is at a major crossroads. two years ago president obama signed the most comprehensive overhaul of american medicine since medicare. this week, the supreme court upheld almost all of the law in a dramatic 5-4 ruling setting up what is sure to be a heated election year debate. meanwhile, our out-of-control health care costs continue to climb. no other nation spends more than 12% of its economy on health care. america spends 17%. what is more, we don't benefit from the huge price tag. our healthy life expectancy, the standard measurement, ranks only 29th in the world behind slovenia. our infant mortality rate ranks 30th. it's more than twice that of sweden and japan. so what is our problem? in this hour in a "time" magazine essay, we will take you around the world to find out what lessons we can learn from others. we'll visit great britain, taiwan and switzerland to find out what those nations are doing right and what they are doing wrong. we wil
